AR: Barakamon

Good day!

The plot summary:

Seishuu Handa is an up-and-coming calligrapher: young, handsome, talented and unfortunately, a narcissist to boot. When a veteran labels his award-winning piece as 'unoriginal,' Seishuu quickly loses his cool with severe repercussions.

As punishment, and also in order to aid him in self-reflection, Seishuu's father exiles him to the Goto Island, far from the comfortable Tokyo lifestyle the temperamental artist is used to. Now thrown into a rural setting, Seishuu must attempt to find new inspiration and develop his own unique art style-that is, if boisterous children (headed by the frisky Naru Kotoishi), fujoshi middle schoolers, and energetic old men stop barging into his house! The newest addition to the intimate and quirky Goto community only wants to get some work done, but the island is far from the peaceful countryside he signed up for. Thanks to his wacky neighbours who are entire incapable of minding their own business, the arrogant calligrapher learns so much more than he ever hoped to.


Comedy, Slice of Life

My review:

First and foremost, the art is perfect. The sceneries are perfect and the characters are perfectly drawn! 

Seishuu is very proud of his talent and looks down on people. Upon his arrival at the island, his personality changes when he meets the people and he matures and immatures in certain aspects. Naru, an adorable seven-year-old kid who always hangs out and plays with Seishuu. She's cuteee and the most adorable character in this anime. Hina, a crybaby who's always with Naru.

All in all, every single character in the show compliments each other. The characters are pretty interesting and make the series fun to watch. You'll be looking forward to some of them and may find a couple favourites in them too!

I really enjoyed this anime. The comedy was indeed funny, really funny sometimes to make you burst out laughing. Some deep stuff in this anime is well worth noting. It's a good anime for you to watch if you are looking for some lighthearted comedy with a good lesson.

Overall, I loved it. I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed Barakamon, given that I normally watch romantic anime, but I kept coming across it so I thought I'd give a try and I'm so glad that I did.

Oh ok, that's all!

Yours sincerely,
